Announced today by the Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage is that the new musical Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough will now have its world premiere on Broadway when it opens in summer of next year. Previously announced was the Chicago engagement set to begin in the fall of 2019. Due to scheduling difficulties, the show is set bypassing its pre-Broadway engagement to head straight to the Great White Way.
The new musical will feature a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and a score made up of some of the best-loved, top-selling songs in recording history. Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph.
A developmental work session will take place in New York City this fall.
